Planning my next garden in the New England deep freeze and I have a question on growing food.Is there a special method for growing dried beans, like garbanzos or navy beans? Do you just let the pods dry on the stem? Do you pick them green and dry them in an oven or in the sun? Thanks all!

I've always let them dry on the stem, but that may not be the best way. I've never had any trouble though.

To me the beauty of having your own garden is to have fresh vegetables and fruits to feast on in the summer and freeze and can the extras for winter. Dried beans are $1-2 per pound? No way you can grow them for that. Freeze or can the fresh beans for a treat.
